    Another good ep.

    All that has to be done is to drop the ridiculous alignment rules, and allow a player to play the character to their interpretation of the paladins faith.

    My table top group is currently involved in a 5th Ed game and if I ever need to make up another character for it my plan is to play a disgraced Paladin who is on a quest to prove his worth to his god again.

    Played a female paladin named Bridget Anne d’Summerville based on a certain vampire hunter!

    Eventually killed off after the dm forgot his own rules, when I played a LN Cleric he pulled the same tricks even though it was blatant lying on his part which made things more difficult when he runs his own paladin a crusader with emphasis on lack of mercy and more Awful than Lawful Good.

    Still I have met someone who can run a paladin properly literally using his code as an advantage instead of a flaw but that’s probably because I was the dm and not the type to insure they fall!

    Still I was wondering will you or have you discussed the differences between Sorcerors and Wizards?

      DM sabotage is a thing, unfortunately. I wonder if it is more prevalent to Paladins than other classes.

      As for Sorcerers vs Wizards, no we haven’t done an episode about that, but I’ve added it to the topic list (if you have any others, we have a forum thread for them *wink)

    Another great episode. I played a few paladins in 1st edition. I also read a lot of stories of players losing their paladins from bad calls from DM’s. This might have been avoided if the players and DM’s got together and went over what was acceptable for a paladin for that deity. A paladin for deity of Athena should probably be human, female, and a virgin. Acting as the avatars for Athena, they would always oppose the clerics of Mars, acting as counselors, builders, & high ranking officers during the time of war. Meanwhile, another paladin of LG god of maybe home and hearth, might be expected to marry and have children.

    Also with so many interpretations of LG, no one would bat an eye at an army LG putting a village of orcs to torch and no one would bat an eye. But have a paladin try to put down a wounded wyvern, all of suddenly it is a violation of the paladins code.

      Thank you!

      LG interpretation has been a hotly debated topic forever. I think that it’s just one of those things that will never truly be decided (like most morality interpretations)
